I think I'm not getting the connection. I'd expect that inference
would allow one to say that e.g. a myco:Employee is subclass of a
foaf:Person before enforcing a rule that required the foaf:Person arc
on employee records. I thought that normalization was about
predictably ordering the arcs. Is my model wrong, or perhaps one
conversationed morphed into the other? More importantly to my task at
hand, should I continue to track this?
